The signature is lost in scratch, the colour could be anything (Johansfors? Kosta? Orrefors? Holmegaard?), the section is full oval, not flat oval like the Gullaskruf somersos.
Opinions please?

Do I detect an air bubble in the upper left hand side of the vase?

 If so, it would not make it to the second shops at Kosta, Boda, Ã…fors and Orrefors.

Could have been make at the many studios in Finland or Sweden.

The form is so Scandinavian but to id is almost impossible.
